  • Is the property’s recorded legal description sufficient?
  • Do the rights include physical access to the property that meets your needs?
  • Will the purchased rights permit you to use the property in the manner desired?
  • Will the title be marketable should you decide to sell or remortgage the property?

Your attorney will also perform a series of important actions as appropriate to your specific transaction, such as:

  • Obtain a title search, evaluate the status of title, and require appropriate legal remedies to clear defects.
  • Prepare and review the Closing Statement and other closing documents, and inform you about any stipulations that affect your interests.
  • Interpret and counsel you about all legal documents related to the title and transaction, including deeds, mortgages, and closing statements.
